    Is this possible? I know there was news about it last year but I don't see the functionality...? I'm on an iPhone.

    Under the Controls tab, look in the upper righthand corner for "Start".

    Just be aware, saw on here somewhere that if you start with app it limits the amount of time the car will run/remain started - e.g. like 2 minutes.

    Just used this to move car into garage that was parked outside. Key was in the house phone was in my pocket. This works great being too lazy to go into the house to get the key at the time.

    The amount of time the car will run isn't limited. However, you have to 'start' the car within two minutes of activating keyless driving, or you have to reenter your MyTesla Password again.

    No, this is incorrect, the car gives you 2 minutes to drive away. The amount of driving is unlimited.

    That was a bad post... I saw it too. You have to start the car within 2 minutes as others have said. I have driven mine well over an hour started this way.
